just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.

While venturing into the potentially shallow territory of comparing players of a certain skin color to players of the same skin color, watching those highlights reminds me a lot of Nick Collison. Both have a solid post game and can knock down the mid range shot. Both are athletic enough to finish at the rim, but not quite explosive enough to go all De'Andre Jordan on somebody. They've got that other thing in common too...
If he ends up anywhere close to as good as Collison was at Kansas, we've got a heckuva player.

If Adidas was really interested in designing uniforms that put as much "maize" on these as possible, they would've treated their precious three stripes just as they did "Michigan" on the front of the jersey.
New mantra: it's not the name on the front of the jersey, it's the logo on the back of the shoes???
If the kids like them, whatever...

1. I never called anyone a "money grubbing asshole".
2. The majority of the argument doesn't seem to be Current Bowl System vs Tiny Playoff. The issue is that the Bowl System is not a good way of determining the national champion. Large or small, no one seems to dispute that a playoff is a sound way to choose a champion. Rarely have I heard anyone complain about the validity of a tourney champ in NCAA hoops or any other sport.
3. The logistics of having a "very big" playoff don't work for football like they do in basketball. An 8 team playoff would be pushing it and I think the NCAA can figure this out. You wouldn't have to be pissed off about losing the bowl system. It will probably still be there waiting to provide you with decent matchups of teams that range from "so so" to "good but not great" from early December until NYE. Then on Jan 1st you could have a legit way to settle on a national champ as a bonus.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||BCS||
The BCS and all of their cronies are now in self preservation mode, and they're grasping at straws to try and remain relevant so they can still collect their paychecks. A small selective playoff, like the one Brian and others have suggested, preserves the importance of the regular season just as well as the current system does. The justifications they give for trying to keep the BCS intact are hollow sentiments aimed at trying to convince everyone that the status quo is something we should all embrace.

When he finds out the bowl ban and scholarhip reductions are way higher than what's already been self imposed and runs for the hills, is that called Urban Sprawl?

When he can't beat Michigan, and Ohio stops believing in him, and he finds himself on the proverbial hot seat, is that called the Urban Heat Island Effect???

If you're a woman who likes rocking revealing Michigan gear, it's probably within your rights to have your own picture as your avatar.
If you're a dude who wants a picture of a woman for your avatar, keep it PG-13.
How is it that no one has OMG Tebow as an avatar by the way???

on 1st glance through, it does comes across as negative and a little harsh.
IIRC from the other posts about him, it sounds like if Jarrod Wilson doesn't commit, then he wold get his scholarship. Not sure if this is confirmed or speculation pieced together from quotes in the posts. If that's the case, it would suggest the staff thinks that he's much more than just a step above walk-on status.

would rather watch the finish of close game of golf than any baseball game.....and I don't really like golf.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||baseball problem||
while it might be cheap to play, it's relatively tough to play a pickup game becausey you need a lot of people and a lot of space. with a game like basketball, if you have a hoop and a ball at least you can shoot around. two guys can play one on one. four can play an actual game.
The problems with its marketability also stem from the ability of star players to have the opportunity to make plays. In basketball, soccer, hockey, and football, you can gear an offense toward your best players. In baseball, your best hitter usually gets 3 to 5 chances to make a difference in a 3 hour span. I think that's a definite flaw in the game.
I've never really been a fan of baseball, and I've always been bothered by the whole "America's Pasttime" mystique surrounding it. It seems like they are grasping at straws and yelling "God is on our side" in order to convince people to watch. In my opinion, it is a slow, tedious game to watch, and playing isn't much better. Standing in the outfield and waiting for something to maybe come your way isn't exactly exciting. I think its time has past, and it will continue to be marginalized.

is it okay if we don't call it that???

please dont' compare taking cash as a college player to stretching for 20 minutes. One is a major violation in every sense of the word. The other is a "major" violation in name only.
In an imaginary world, where stealing ice cream is a felony, your post would also read:
"Homicide is a felony, but so is stealing ice cream, so what's the big deal."
